This weekend Zig Zag had a meeting with owner and founder of Excitment South Entertainment, Brian Prato. They came to an affiliation agreement on Thursday night, with both parties expressing mutual respect and interest in each other. We sat down with Zig Zag on Saturday to ask him a few questions about the meeting, and if there was any word on #LSD.
Q. - We heard you met with Brian Prato on Thursday night to discuss a company affiliation, would you care to tell us how that went?
Zig Zag - Yeah I met with Prato, he came over to my house and expressed his interest in having my brand and Troupe Inc. affiliated with Excitement South Entertainment and I was all for it. I considered it a sign of appreciation for my work as well as a sign of respect. I'm honestly really excited for this to kick off.
Q. - Tell us more about Excitement South Entertainment and what they bring to the table.
Zig Zag - Well right off the bat 2 names I wanna say are Daryl Campbell and Pro-Lif-Ik.
I've known Daryl for a short while now, I actually have him as a listed artist on #LSD, he produced "Man Whore" which I actually feature in. He's one hell of a businessman and I look forward to picking his brain.
Pro-Lif-Ik is a new face to me personally. He was at an open mic I did last week at Cafe Nola and he watched my set and approached me afterwards and introduced himself and expressed his opinions on my performance. I'm excited to work with him personally on a future collaboration.
Overall I think Excitement South Entertainment is a class act of hard working individuals. I'm pumped.
Q. - What does this mean for Troupe Inc.?
Zig Zag - It just means we picked up some good people to have in our corner. As per our agreement, I made it clear that I would not separate from Troupe in any way. I'm just another hand on deck for them as they as for me. It's all about making music, making memories, and making money. I think we share that vision. But Troupe Inc. is strong as ever. We're preparing a full-promo attack for LSD.
Q. - Speaking of #LSD, do you have any info for us on the project itself?
Zig Zag - Yeah it's going to be delayed. I'm only hoping 2 weeks. But I can't rush this shit. I need it to be perfect. I've been having equipment problems I'm trying to compensate for as well as stay on schedule. That's not a thing. So I'm in the process of having shit repaired properly, then I can resume. I want this album out as bad as you guys. More. Trust me.
Q. - We heard Brian Prato sent you a little gift for your affiliation that may help with production?
Zig Zag - Yeah my man sent me a Xion Tailgater live performance speaker. Now I can properly master the music which is gonna save me so much time and improve the quality. Major upgrade.
